On Friday, we appointed the new House Captains for this school year. Each of the P7 pupils were offered the chance to stand for election and were given the chance to make a short speech to outline why they were the best candidate for the captaincy.
I can honestly say that in all of my years teaching, I have never heard such passionate and powerful speeches that showed exactly what being captain means to the P7 pupils. Every single candidate was OUTSTANDING and deserves massive credit for their preparation and delivery!
All of the pupils were allowed to vote for the person they wished to be their own House Captain and after some very close voting, the following pupils have been elected:
Captain: Jack S; Vice-Captain: Sarah G
Captain: Anne M; Vice-Captain: Andrew B
Captain: Daniel Mac; Vice-Captain: Georgia R
Captain: Daniel Mc; Vice-Captain: Jack H
Captain: Corey M; Vice-Captain: Matthew T
Huge congratulations and good luck to those who were elected and commiserations to those who were pipped at the post…
